I just now opened this email. How do I go about checking to see if the address is valid. Should I consider it questionable and just delete it even though I am courious to find out what it is about. I have heard that if it sounds too good to be true then it is probably junk. Here is the email. After reading it a second time I think it is probably junk. Any opinions?
